Taiwan trip post!!! Just came back from Taiwan last Friday night therefore ended my 2 weeks Taiwan Trip with my Sunway buddies. :) This is indeed a memorable trip as it is also our graduation trip :D I am quite contented with the places we visited as our papa-like van driver aka tour guide brought us to lots of interesting and unforgettable places with jaw-drop scenery :)) A true guide to Taiwan I would say eliminating all those typical tourist commercialized attractions.

Our very first meal after the 4 hrs flight would be at this "Lazy to Cook " Hakka Mee Restaurant (懒得煮客家面食馆)our tour guide brought us :D

Some tempting looking side dishes :)

My all girls trip mates - Anqi, June and Jareil :D

Plus Cindy and ME ! :D

We tried out the taufu and the bearded dragon dish (龙须菜)~ both eatable haha

My duck mee soup :DD This bigggg bowl of hot soup is so fulfilling and enjoying in the cold weather :)

Bihun mushroom soup they order :)


Our room in Doris B & B (陶樂絲花園) we stayed for our first night :)

I didnt take anymore pichas the place we stayed therefore I grabbed this picha from the internet :P This would be how our room looks like but with 3 double beds. The location is quite good as it is just minutes away from Feng Jia Night Market :D

Visited Feng Jia Night Market for dinner and shopping!!! :D

We ordered lots of this Braised Snacks (卤味) at one of the long queued stalls :D

End up stuffing my stomach mostly with the small intestine and gizzards of duck I think lol

Some sotong stuffed with rice Anqi ordered :)

Ahh scallops I like these hehe

Sea salt flavoured scallop so fresh and juicy ^^

Trying out some steamed muachi :D

No idea why everyone's eyes are so tiny in this picha lol

Some advice : After travelling in Taiwan for more than 2 weeks, I still prefer Feng Jia Night Market as my shopping heaven as the clothes and accessories there are still the cheapest compared to other night market. Wu Fen Pu is also shop-able but its price range will be higher while Xi Men Ding has a lesser variety of clothing and higher prices. Therefore girls, it would be a wise choice to stay near Feng Jia on the last few days of your trip for shopping haul AND also to avoid the trouble carrying our shopping goods from the 1st day til the last day of your trip like us lol

pichas credit to me, cindy & annger :)
